    Chinese artist Ai Weiwei says he is under house arrest

    Ai Weiwei is based in Beijing but had built a new, second studio in Shanghai

    One of China's best-known artists, Ai Weiwei, says he has been under house arrest at his home in Beijing.

    He says the authorities want to prevent him holding a party to mark the forced demolition of his new Shanghai studio.

    Mr Ai was initially invited to build the space, but it has now been declared illegal and will shortly be demolished.

    The artist helped create Beijing's Olympic Bird's Nest stadium and his latest installation of sunflower seeds is showing at London's Tate Modern.

    Born in 1957 in Beijing, the artist has played a key role in contemporary Chinese art over the last two decades, and has been highly vocal about human rights issues in the country.

    Unmarked van

    Mr Ai had planned to hold a party at his $1.1m (£670,000) Shanghai studio on Sunday prior to its demolition.

    But on Friday, he said that men he suspected were plain-clothes police officers told he would not be allowed to travel to Shanghai.

    A van without numberplates with more than 10 men inside was blocking the exit from his home at an artists' colony in Beijing, he added.

    "I'm under house arrest to prevent me from going to Shanghai. You can never really argue with this government," Mr Ai told the Associated Press by telephone.

    According to messages on his Twitter feed, Mr Ai has been told he will be under house arrest until midnight on Sunday.

    "Please accept my deepest apologies," he tweeted to his guests in Shanghai.

    He said that some people still planned to travel to his studio.

    He had planned to serve river crabs at the event.

    It is thought that the choice of crabs was a political statement as the Chinese name for river crab sounds like "harmonise", a euphemism often used by the Chinese authorities for censorship.

    Political art
    Shanghai had imposed a six-month moratorium on large-scale building and demolition projects during the World Expo, in a bid to improve air quality, but reports say these have resumed since the exhibition ended.

    "Ai's studio did not go through the application procedures, therefore, it is an illegal building," Chen Jie, director of the urban construction department in Malu township, where the studio is located, is quoted as telling the Global Times.

    Mr Ai's latest work is currently on display in London's Tate Modern gallery: a giant installation made up of hundreds of thousands of tiny, hand-painted replica sunflower seeds.

    Sunflower seeds are a popular Chinese street snack but also hold another meaning for the artist.

    During the Cultural Revolution, propaganda images showed Chairman Mao as the sun and the mass of people as sunflowers turning towards him.

    "The seed is a household object but at the same time it is a revolutionary symbol," Mr Ai has said of his work.

    Premier League bosses criticise 2022 Cup switch plan


    Wenger says a switch to winter would be too problematic
    Premier League managers have come out against the idea of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar being played in January.
    Sepp Blatter, head of world football's governing body Fifa, has backed a switch, conceding that summer temperatures in Qatar are too high.
    But Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger warned: "It would create problems between clubs and countries and countries and Fifa.
    "It would mean completely reorganising the whole world's fixtures, and I cannot see that happening."
    The Frenchman continued with a hint of sarcasm: "As you know, we have a Christmas period which is quite busy here, and England would be very happy to play the World Cup in January just after that.
    "It looks like an idea that has come out of nowhere because nobody was told that when the bid was voted for."
    Fulham manager Mark Hughes said the Premier League would still be playing matches in July if a switch to winter in 2022 happened.

    DAVID BOND'S BLOG
    Blatter saying he "expects" it to be changed is the clearest indication yet that the process of moving the 2022 World Cup is well and truly under way
    He said: "That's the only way round it from my interpretation. It's going to be a huge change that year and how it impacts we won't know until it actually happens."
    Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp's sarcastic response was that the idea was "another clever move from Mr Blatter".
    Former England manager Graham Taylor, speaking to Eddie Mair on Radio 4's PM programme, said he found the idea of the switch "amazing".
    He added: "If people weren't aware of that prior to the vote then I don't really know what is happening.

    Club football dominates in England and they won't take kindly to a four-week - or even more - winter break
    Former England boss Graham Taylor
    "He's now saying it's going to be too hot in the summer. I mean everyone's been aware of that for goodness knows how long. So I really am at a loss for him coming in now and saying there's a possibility of it being played in the winter."
    Taylor said he expected the tournament to go ahead but felt it would cause problems in the Premier League.
    "If the Premier League hasn't changed, if we haven't bought into some form of winter break, of course there's a problem, there's no doubt about that," he said.
    "Club football dominates in our country and they won't take kindly to something like a four-week - or even more - winter break."
    Qatar won the right to host the 2022 World Cup last month, becoming the first Middle Eastern country to be chosen to stage football's most prestigious tournament.
    However, concerns were raised almost immediately about playing it at the height of summer, when temperatures in Qatar can exceed 40C.
    Fifa president Blatter said on Friday: "Although we have the basic conditions of their bid for a June and July World Cup, the Fifa executive committee is entitled to change anything that was in the bid.
    "When you play football you have to protect the main people - the players."
